MEZCOPH Alumni Connect at Washington DC Gathering

Alumni, students, and supporters from the Washington DC area were pleased to catch up and connect with college leadership, faculty, and staff at a recent reception hosted by the college at the UArizona’s DC Center.

The college recently hosted a reception that brought together over two dozen of our alumni, students, faculty, staff, and community supporters in Washington, DC, for an evening of connection and camaraderie.

The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health (MEZCOPH) event was held at the University of Arizona’s Washington, DC Center for Outreach & Collaboration. It provided an opportunity for attendees to share stories, connect with each other, and engage with college leadership and staff. College leadership and faculty were pleased to reunite with graduates who have gone on to work as professionals in federal agencies, national and state public health organizations, and other public health roles in the DC area.

Dean Iman Hakim warmly welcomed everyone and expressed her delight in reconnecting with many alumni and students. Amber Richmond MA ’18, Manager of Alumni & Student Strategic Initiatives, gave a presentation about the new alumni website during the event, and showcased the exciting engagement opportunities for alumni:
